Wall Street falls after Trump warning to North Korea

"He has been very threatening beyond a normal state and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before", Trump said from his golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

CNN has previously reported that U.S. intelligence estimates Pyongyang may have the capacity to deliver a nuclear weapon to the United States mainland by early next year and its missile program showed significant progress during two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July. Responding to Mr Trump's latest comments, Republican Senator John McCain said in an interview that "great leaders" don't threaten foes unless they're ready to act - and he's not certain President Trump is ready to act against North Korea.

In a confidential analysis, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) concluded that North Korea manufactured a miniaturized nuclear warhead, which can fit inside long-range missiles capable of reaching the United States.

The Post also reported that another intelligence assessment estimated that North Korea now has up to 60 nuclear weapons, more than previously thought.

He said it was impossible to say if any of the tests were of the miniaturised warhead, but said North Korea had stated it had produced a "standardised" warhead, which suggested it was a "compact" warhead.

The report deepens the military threat North Korea poses.

The UN Security Council on Saturday imposed its toughest round of sanctions yet against Pyongyang over its two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.

North Korea threatened to make the United States "pay the price for its crime. thousands of times".

Australia, Japan, and the USA also urged ASEAN member states "to maximize pressure on North Korea".

"I'd be very surprised if I'm sitting here in 12 months' time and he's the Chelsea manager", he said on Monday' during the first episode of The Debate on Sky Sports Premier League .

Tuesday's retweet also coincided with the release of a series of new polls that not only call Trump's Twitter habits into question but also reveal major concerns around the President's trustworthiness and ability to effectively manage the standoff with North Korea.

Trump threated Pyongyang with "fire and fury" over its missile program just days after the UN Security Council levied new sanctions on North Korea over its growing nuclear arsenal.

North Korea says the U.S.is driving the Korean peninsula to war, vowing revenge against new United Nations sanctions. "That might be satisfying at one level, but it takes us down into the mud that we should let Pyongyang enjoy alone", said Paal, who served as a White House official under previous Republican administrations.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his South Korean counterpart Kang Kyung-hwa met on Sunday during the ASEAN Regional Forum in Manila and agreed to begin preliminary negotiations, according to Korea Economic Daily.

It added that Japan and South Korea "kowtowed blindly" to the U.S.

Even bolstering defences against North Korea runs the risk of accidental confrontation or escalating the existing arms race.

North Korea is believed to be working on extending the reach of its ICBMs to the U.S. mainland by as soon as next year.

North Korea threatened to hit Guam with its Hwasong-12 missiles, which it says can carry a heavy nuclear warhead and before the two ICBM launches had demonstrated the longest potential range of the missiles test-fired by the North.
